I currently have a 2.5 year old whom I couldn't imagine my life without. In the beginning it didn't come so easily for me. I cried constantly and felt as if my world had been turned upside down. It was definitely PPD for me, but after getting on the right meds I felt much better. I think the major lifestyle change plus hormones and the surprise C-section all were major factors.
That being said, today my mom and I were talking about the future and she was saying once DS is in school, she could get me teaching jobs etc.. if I felt like using my degree, or furthering my education. I told her that I was really hoping for more kids, that I would love to stay home with my next child too. Her response was " Do you really think more children is a good idea? with everything you went through with your DS?" It hurt me to know that she questions my ability to handle another pregnancy/birth and a new baby. This is not the first time she has made that sort of comment to me about more children.
So my question is, if you had PPD with first child, what were your thoughts on having more kids? If you have more than one child, would you mind sharing your experiences with how you handled PPD with one or both children? TIA!
